Sielun Veljet – Evil Kübl

Älyämpäristä kertova biisi

“Put the chillum in the bottle
And the bottle in the water
And the water in the bucket
And the bucket on the table
Put the bottle with no bottom
On the bottom of the bucket

If you wanna have a smoke
You wanna have a better smoke
You never ever had before
You gotta use a new machine
It’s an Evil Kübl

Give the light, lift up
Chillum off, breathe in!”

Run-D.M.C. – Pause

Run-D.M.C.:n Back from Hell -levyltä löytyvä Pause taitaa olla sanomaltaan aika huumevastainen biisi.

“Afros…. yeahhh
Afros! Yeahhh
Brothers be out there doin crack… Nooooooo!
They be doin dope… Nooooooo!
They be gangbangin! Nooooooo!
All them brothers need to just
pause

Yeah I’m with that
Here comes the Afros, and the forty ounce crew
Who say slowly but surely, we gonna turn the mother out
We got more, in store, young ladies on the floor, so cool out
pause

Intro, which means I start it
In other words, herbs departed
Pause, stop for the cause
Get up, get down, you get yours
Chill, no time to get ill
Word to herb — yeah it’s the will of God
So whassup Hobbes?
Just jock, clock, rock, and don’t stop but
Pause

Pause, pause for the cause, get yours
But don’t break laws
Quit, quit it, forget it
Pause, say your way with it
Pause, if you did it, admit it
Cause, you shouldn’ta did it
Next time, you think of doin a crime
Pause, and remember this rhyme

Pause for the cause, cause broken laws
Are just like broken jaws
They take a long time to heal
I’m for real, and I know the deal
Look it over, investigate
Evaluate, think!
Life is wrong, and full of flaws
Before you break laws just pause!

I think that worked man

Pause
Yeah pause, this beat is dope D
I’m tellin you, this beat is dope, just slammin, it’s dope

Well if it’s dope, I hope it’s not crack
Or coke, or nuttin like somethin you EVER smoke
And if they offer you some say NO
Or pause
The reason I wrote this rhyme, is not to climb
But just to tell all mankind
That the use and abuse of drugs — will what?
Will, blow, your, mind

Like dough makes bread, it goes straight to your head
You’re misled and then you’re dead
Now that’s not fly, when you die
On a high
Like a trip, oooh, you make me sick
Ill, lookin like doo doo on a stick
You don’t have to be a vic
Life is like a flick, so pause

Pause, p-pause, pause, p-p-pause

Alright y’all, now that you understand
My man Run never ran
I’m gonna take this mic yo my hand
And hand this to the one man band

Now pause, now pause

I’m Jay, I make up the trey
Now check out the dance that I display
It’s called the pause
A new thing, on the dancefloor
First you move, then you stop
Combine the hustle, foxtrot, pop and lock
Put em all together why because
It’s called the pause

Slammin, the dance is slammin
Pause, the people are jammin
Stop again, back to the groove
I show you how to move
pause
It’s simple, just like stop and go
You can pause on the fast or slow
Participate, won’t you all get down
Here’s a solo from my homeboy Stanley Brown

Ahh yeah, I like this R&B shit…
Pause, pause, one more time!
Yeah, do that, do that…
Now pause!”

Third Eye Blind – Slow Motion

Third Eye Blindin “Slow Motion” on kirjoitettu dramatisoimaan median luomaa kuvaa huumeiden käytöstä Hollywoodissa. Blue albumin Amerikan versiossa laulusta on vain liki instrumentaaliversio, koska levy-yhtiön mielestä sanat olivat liian rajut.

“Miss Jones taught me english,
But I think I just shot her son
‘Cause he owed me money
With a bullet in the chest you can not run

Now he’s bleeding in a vacant lot
The one in the summer where we used to smoke pot
I guess I didn’t mean it
But man, you shoulda seen it

His flesh explode
Slow motion, see me let go
We tend to die young
Slow motion, see me let go
What a brother knows
Slow motion, see me let go

Now the cops will get me,
But girl, if you would let me
I’ll take your pants off
I got a little bit of blow we could both get off

Later bathing in the afterglow,
Two lines of coke I cut with Drano
And her nose starts to bleed
A most beautiful ruby red

Slow motion, see me let go
We’ll remember these days
Slow motion, see me let go
Urban life decay
Slow motion, see me let go

And at home, my sister’s eating paint chips again,
Maybe that’s why she’s insane
I shut the door to the moaning,
And I shoot smack in veins
Wouldn’t you?

See my neighbor’s beating his wife,
Because he hates his life
There’s a knock to his fist as he swings,
Oh man, what a beautiful thing

And death slides close to me,
Won’t grow old to be
A junkie wino creep

Hollywood glamorized my wrath,
I’m a young urban psychopath
I incite murder, for your entertainment
‘Cause I needed the money, what’s your excuse?
The joke’s on you.

Slow motion, see me let go,
Oh yeah.
Slow motion, see me let go, oh
Slow motion, see me let go, ooh”

Trixie Smith – Jack, I’m Mellow

Trixie Smithin “Jack, I’m Mellow” sisältää 30-luvun huumeslangia. Smoke some gage tarkoittaa siis kannabiksen polttamista.

“I’m so high and so dry,
I’m sailin’ in the sky,
Just smoke some gage,
Come around babe,
Jack, I’m mellow.

I’m so high and so dry,
I’m way up in the sky,
The world seems light
And I’m so right,
Jack, I’m mellow.

I’m going to put my nickel in a slot machine
And play my solid sender,
I’m going to strut, peck and Suzie-Q,
Have alone a bender,

I’m so high and so dry,
I’m sailin’ in the sky,
I got my roach around
And I can’t come down,
Jack, I’m mellow.

I’m so high and so dry,
I’m sailin’ in the sky,
Just smoke some gage,
Come around babe,
Jack, I’m mellow.

I’m so high and so dry,
I’m way up in the sky,
The world seems light
And I’m so right,
Jack, I’m mellow.”

Cab Calloway and His Orchestra – Minnie the Moocher

Cab Calloway 30-luvun jazz-hitti vilisee viittauksia huumeisiin. Vilahtaapa biisi Blues Brothers elokuvassakin.

“Folks here’s a story ’bout Minnie the Moocher; she was a red hot hoochie
coocher.
She was the roughest toughest frail; but Minnie had a heart as big as a whale.

Hi de hi de hi de hi
Ho de ho de ho de ho
Hee de hee de hee de hee
Ho oo waooo waoooo

She messed around with a bloke named Smokey; She loved him though he was kokey.
He took her down to Chinatown and showed her how to kick the gong around.

Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi
Ho-whooooaaaa-ahhhh-ohh
He-de-he-de-hee-de-he
Ho-oh-ho-oh

She had a dream about the king of Sweden; he gave her things, that she was
needin’.
He gave her a home built of gold and steel, a diamond car, with the puh-latinum
wheels.

Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi
Ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-ho-de-oh
Skeedle-a-booka-diki biki skeedly beeka gookity woop!
A-booriki-booriki-booriki Hoy!

He gave her his town house and his racing horses; each meal she ate was a dozen
courses.
She had a million dollars in nickels and dimes; she sat around and counted it
all, a million times.

Hi-de-hi-de-hi-de-hi
Ho-oh-whoaa-oh-oh-whoa
He-de-he-de-hee-de-hee
Poor Min! Poor Min! Poo-oor Min”

Incubus – We’re Smokin’ the Herb Again

Incubuksen alkutaipaleen ep:ltä löytyvä piilobiisi hehkuttaa yrtin elikkäs kannabiksen polttelua.

“Yo Yo Yo, Yo, Yo Yo What
Smoking
We’re smoking, we’re smoking the herb again
We’re smoking, we’re smoking, we’re smoking the herb again
We’re smoking, we’re smoking, we’re smoking the herb again
We’re smoking, we’re smoking, we’re smoking the herb again

Damn, I really wish I could find my sack man
Must have got eaten by Pac-Man
If I had it I could smoke again
Smoke with my friends until the very end
But now I’m trying to comprehend
When’s the next time that I’ll smoke again
I need to know, please tell when will we smoke again

I got a buddy, his name is Ted
He’s got a problem going through his head
He doesn’t know how to puff puff give
But I like him so I’ll teach him and I’ll let him live
Everyday we teach him right
When he defies, we have to fight
But at the end of the trying day
We says it’s ok and we puff away

Just the other night, I saw you, you were smokin not sharing and being tight
But that’s ok, you are my friend, we’re smoking it until the end
The lessons that we put out, we order you to try it out
It’s nice to smoke, yea that’s what we’re all about

Smoking
We’re smoking, we’re smoking the herb again
We’re smoking, we’re smoking, we’re smoking the herb again
We’re smoking, we’re smoking, we’re smoking the herb again
We’re smoking, we’re smoking, we’re smoking the herb again

Hey, Ho, Hey Ho, Hey, Ho, Hey, Ho, Hey, Ho, Hey, Ho

Spit it Ya Wet It, Don’t Babysit it just Hit it, Now Pass it to the Left

I smoke, you smoke, we smoke, they smoke, smoking everywhere
I smoke, you smoke, we smoke, they smoke, smoking all together

Smoking
We’re smoking, we’re smoking the herb again”

Electric Wizard – Dopethrone

Brittiläisen Doom Metal yhtyeen Dopethrone albumin nimikkobiisistä on tullut jonkinmoinen ikonimainen tunnus bändille. Kymmenminuuttisessa biisissä viitataan kannabikseen, noituuteen ja musiikin kuunteluun. Mielenkiintoinen combo, sanoisin.

“Dope priest prophecy
Doomantra from beneath the sea
Green throne, raised to the black sun
Doom child, wake to planet song

Rise, black amps tear the sky
Feedback will free your mind and set you free
Rise, black amps tear the sky
Riff hewn altar wreathed in smoke and weed

Dopethrone, in this land of sorcery
Dopethrone, vision through T.H.C.
Dopethrone, feedback will free
Dopethrone, three wizards crowned with weed, yeah

Black monolith charged with unlight
Sacrifice to forever midnight
Towers, titan sonic wave
Sorcery, necromantic slaves

Rise, black amps tear the sky
Feedback will free your mind and set you free
Rise, black amps tear the sky
Riff hewn altar wreathed in smoke and weed, yeah

Dopethrone, in this land of sorcery
Dopethrone, vision through T.H.C., yeah
Dopethrone, feedback will free, yeah
Dopethrone, three wizards crowned with weed, yeah

In this land of sorcery
Vision through T.H.C.
Holy feedback, it will free
Three wizards crowned with weed

Rise

Smoke

Dopethrone”

Hurriganes – Mary Jane

Richard Stanley tuotti Hurriganesin klassikkoalbumin Roadrunner ja jo tuolle albumille kyhäsi muutaman biisin. Tuota albumia seurannut Crazy Days olikin sitten lähes tyystin Stanleyn sanoittama. Näin myös tämä albumin kakkosraita on hänen käsialaansa. Ja sanathan eivät jätä juurikaan tulkinnanvaraa mistä lauletaan.

“I´m gonna take a plane to Acapulco
Blow some doe on sweet time smoke vacation
Flying high babe down to Acapulco
Don´t expect to se me round a while

Mary Jane , Mary Jane , i´m coming
Mary Jane , Mary Jane , hold on now
Mary Jane , J-J-J-J-Jane , i´m flying
Mary , Mary Take me to the moon

Hot rod stands my pilot cross the border
Mexicana fuzz don´t ever see his wings
Happy landings high up in the mountain
Up that peak you really feel a king

Mary Jane , Mary Jane , i´m coming
Mary Jane , Mary Jane , hold on now
Mary Jane , J-J-J-J-Jane , i´m flying
Mary , Mary take me to the moon

I´m gonna take a plane to Acapulco
Blow some doe on sweet time smoke vacation
Flying high baby down to Acapulco
Don´t expect to see me around a while

Mary Jane , Mary Jane , i´m coming
Mary Jane , Mary Jane , hold on now
Mary Jane , J-J-J-J-Jane , i´m flying
Mary , Mary , take me to the moon”

Stereophonics – I’m Alright (You Gotta Go There to Come Back)

Jonkun vuoksi tehdään tässä Stereophonicsien biisissä kovasti kaikenlaista… mm. käytetään huumeita.

“I’ll drink another drink for you
One, two, three, four, five, once I drank a fish alive
I’ll drop another pill for you
Six, seven, eight, nine, ten, did it before, I’ll do it again

I’ll tell another joke for you
Did you hear the one about the one that looks like you
I’ll sleep with sleep arounds for you
Why don’t you scratch my back and chew the tongue I chew

I’m alright
I’m alright

I’ll tell another lie for you
Tell you what you wanna hear, but that don’t make it true
I’ll wear another smile for you
That way you know I’m fine, and having fun with you

I’ll draw another line for you
That way you know I’m hip, that way you know I’m cool
I’ll smoke another smoke for you
I’ll blow back in your mouth and you can blow back too

I’m alright
I’m alright
You gotta go there to come back

I’ll take another punch for you
Tie my hands behind my back, that way you cannot lose
I’ll make another pound for you
So you can drive your motor car, and drive you to the moon

I’m alright
I’m alright

You. Me. Us. Free… we’re alright, alright

Love. Pain. Hate. Rain… we’re alright, alright

Give. Take. Time. Place… we’re alright, alright”
